multimedia tools

The three designs pen2, zoom and touch are multimedia tools for the interactive use of the Brockhaus encyclopedia.


Through the combination of digital and analogue knowledge the design adapts to the information society of today.

Therefore, the transfer of knowledge from books becomes more flexible and interactive.

The design of pen2 includes a digital pen and a related charging station. With the help of this device acoustic contents can be played by the reader of the Brockhaus Encyclopedia.

Along with follow-on acoustic information on a chosen topic the device also offers a fascinating new world of reading for children.

At first sight the corresponding/appendant mug appears to be just a regular pen holder. But, as a matter of fact, it is not because the bottom of the mug is equipped with an induction recharging technology. Twisting the upper part of the mug activates the loudspeakers and the volume control.
